We did appreciate the very considerable effort you devoted to preparing a very comprehensive overview of the Indian economy, contrasting it with China and identifying economic opportunities for Australia University of Melbourne

It was worth waiting four years to get you .. Your thoughtful, comprehensive outline of China and India's spectacular growth trajectories, the economic and political issues they face, and the implications for economies such as Australia, really resonated with the audience of CFOs.
